A first for Deshok from Google

SEO Finally working for Flash websites:

Deshok.com acquired their first, tangible enquire via Google this week.
I ironically the project is for print and is currently being quoted for. This coincides with Deshok reaching Google page 2, under the search terms, "website design Bournemouth".

This in it's self, doesn't sound much like news but the above has been achived, by a single Flash page and, according to some, is impossible. : )

Neil's London Marathon 09

Why the London Marathon:
I've wanted to run the London Marathon for a long time and now it has become something that I want to do, to achieve then tick it off my list. I’m not in for a race or competing, I just want to take part, run the whole thing with no walking and raise as much money as I can for my chosen charities.

The Stroke Association:

I approached the The Stroke Association, they seemed fun and friendly, they accepted my application and so here we are. I also wanted to run for a more local good-cause and one night at a BBQ at a friends I got chatting to another friend called Ali and she told me that she was a sister on Ward 5 Bournemouth Hospital and that no one ever donated any money to them and that they were quite forgotten. “OK” I said “I’ll run for you then” To find out more about the great work The Stroke Association do, visit there website: http://www.stroke.org.uk
Ward 5 Bournemouth Hospital:
Ward 5 doesn't have a website, so I will have to tell you that I think they are an under funded and over looked and hard working ward, that looks after elderly and psychologically vulnerable patients.

Give them your support:
The way I like to look at both of these good-causes is that there is an outside chance that we might need their services one day. I know its not a very cool thing to think about but I see supporting them, almost like insurance, so get behind them and donate as much as you can.

Do you want to give? Here’s how:
I'm still thinking of clever and out of the box ways to raise money. Below is my list so far:
  • Donate money Using JustGiving Gift Aid Click here
  • Donate using the widget in the side bar
  • Sponsor space on my running shirt (More info on that coming soon)
  • Just sponsor me in the usually way, by filling in a form

Remember, the goal is to raise £2500 so please do give generously and thank you for your support.
